Interesting advantage to generic drug makers, limited liability for adverse outcomes.
Dozens of suits against drug companies have been dismissed in federal and state courts because of a decision by the Supreme Court last year that makes it virtually impossible to sue generic manufacturers for failing to provide adequate warning of a prescription drug’s dangers. This outrageous denial of a patient’s right to recover fair damages makes it imperative that Congress or the Food and Drug Administration fashion a remedy.
Medicynical Note: Its fascinating to view the unintended consequences of what seems a reasonable regulation. A fix may be in the works but who knows what that will entail and what consequences it will bring.
No doubt our conservative/libertarian friends would argue it would be better to do without regulation and oversight at all. Really?
